NBA: Players with the Most Triple-Doubles in Playoff History

Magic Johnson Has an Unbreakable (?) 30 NBA Playoff Triple-Doubles (Larry Bird Is No Slouch Either, Ranking Third with 10)

Magic Johnson Has an Unbreakable (?) 30 NBA Playoff Triple-Doubles (Larry Bird Is No Slouch Either, Ranking Third with 10)

Everybody loves triple-doubles, especially Magic Johnson. He has, by far, the most in playoff history – 30.

Active New York Knick Jason Kidd places a distant second with 11. His triple-double days seem behind him, though.

Both also feature on the all-time regular season list – second and third, respectively.

Check out Rajon Rondo already tied for third with fellow Boston Celtic Larry Bird. Before long, Rondo will surpass Kidd. But Magic? That will be very tough. I’m not saying this record is unbreakable, but it will be tough.

Updated May 22, 2013: LeBron James got his 9th in the wild OT Eastern Finals Game 1 win against the Indiana Pacers. James, like Rondo (and perhaps even more so) may have a shot at Johnson in time. Don’t “kidd” yourself, though. Trip-Dubs are hard to come by, especially in the postseason.

Updated June 7, 2013: LeBron got his 10th in Game 1 of the 2013 NBA Finals.

Updated June 19, 2013: LeBron does it again in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals, tying him with Jason Kidd for second-most triple-doubles in Playoff history.

Oscar Robertson - Most Triple-Doubles of All Time

Oscar Robertson – Most Triple-Doubles of All Time

If you’re not familiar with the “Big O,” Oscar Robertson, it’s time. Comparisons with Michael Jordan are not far off the mark.

Robertson finished with two unbreakable records. First, he had the most triple-doubles in history – 181.

Even more astonishing, in 1961-62, Robertson averaged a triple-double for the entire season! 30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds and 11.4 assists. He’s the only player to ever do so.

In all, only three players have reached the 100 career triple-double mark. The other two are Magic Johnson and active New York Knick, Jason Kidd.

Here’s a video look at these three.
